Jackie McNamara: Dundee United boss is not worried about speculation

Ryan Gauld, Stuart Armstrong, Gary Mackay-Steven and John Souttar have all been earning praise, particularly during the team's unbeaten six-match run towards the end of last year.

Everton boss Roberto Martinez was at Tannadice on Sunday to see United come from behind to secure a 2-2 Scottish Premiership draw with in-form Hibernian thanks to two goals in the last seven minutes.

The comeback ensured McNamara's men would not fall to a fourth consecutive defeat, and provided proof his young squad has an abundance of spirit as well as talent.

United have recently given contract extension to Armstrong, Gauld, Souttar and Nadir Ciftci, as well as Darren Petrie and Euan Spark.

When asked about any possible bids coming in for his players this month, McNamara said: "It's part of the game these days. You can't get away from it.

"There will be more of it in the next few weeks so I'll be happy when the window shuts.

"As far as I'm concerned, it's important that we keep them all so they can continue to learn their trade here."

However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

Please Stop Telling Us What To Think

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
